Jesse Lee, Erik Nelson: Method for treating subterranean formation. Schlumberger Technology Corporation, Thomas O Mitchell, Robin Nava, Brigitte L Echols, January 11, 2005: US06840318 (86 worldwide citation)

A method is given in which there is delayed release from the treatment fluid of solid chemicals that are obtained in bulk powder form. The method is used in situations in which it is difficult to encapsulate the chemical to achieve delayed release because the chemical is obtained in powdered form. T ...
